In this year’s Kentucky Derby, Rosie Napravnik will get the ride on Vicars in Trouble as she looks to become the first woman to ever win the Kentucky Derby.

Let’s face it, jockeys are known for being shorter and smaller people. Did you know that the minimum weight for a jockey in the Derby is 121lbs? Did you know that the tallest jockey to ever win the Kentucky Derby was Bobby Jennings? The only jockey to win both the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby is Calvin Borel in 2009. The youngest jockey to ever win the Kentucky Derby was 15 years old, too bad he was not old enough to bet on the Kentucky Derby online as you have to be a minimum of 18 years old to participate in Kentucky Derby online betting for the 140th Kentucky Oaks & Derby on Saturday.. His name was Alonzo Lonnie Clayton and he won in 1892. The first jockey to win the Kentucky Derby was Oliver Lewis.
